Have you ever been to the Mari Vanna’s? Where homemade tomatoes, the tenderest pig fat and the all so familiar “herring under coat” appear on the tables, as if by magic…

Russian, Homemade cuisine

The MariVanna is a cozy restaurant with a Soviet retro look. Black-and-white photos from the past, a samovar and shiny polished crystal glasses in a grandmother's cupboard. The caring Mari Vanna is doing her magic in the kitchen – putting a lot of soul into the culinary treats she makes, as if cooking for her own grandchildren.

Even our forefathers knew that the best way to keep one’s spirits high is eating a bowl of aromatic, nourishing borscht with garlic and a shot of vodka. And if there are homemade sausages, jelly with horseradish and squash spread on the table too – now that’s a real feast!

The kindest Uncle Misha meets the guests of the Mari Vanna restaurant. His striped naval vest, sweatpants and radiant smile are familiar to everyone: from those who come here for sophisticated business meetings to couples having a romantic dinner.

Mari Vanna knows that her guests love to sleep longer, so she serves homemade breakfast all day long. Those who want to enjoy her specialty roasted beef or stuffed goose at one’s own festive table can always call the delivery service.
